Overnight Cinnamon Buns

Dec 6, 2011

Good morning! I have really been slacking.. but something is going on and I will have to fill you in later...

We had some company this weekend, and we decided to do a fondue party Friday night. We had three different fondues. One cheese, one oil, and one a chinese broth. To dip in each we had pork, chicken, steak, shrimp, veggies and then a jalepeno bread. It turned out amazing, everyone had so much fun.

I made some cinnamon buns Saturday and thought I would post the recipe. They are made with a cake mix, and left overnight in the fridge. They turn out soo good everytime even though I somehow seem to screw up the recipe differently everytime.

Overnight Cinnamon Buns

by Renee Pihowich
Prep Time: 1 1/2 hours
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients (24 servings (2 9x13 pans))
  • 3 cups warm water, plus 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 pkg traditional yeast
  • 1 pkg Duncan Hines White Cake Mix
  • 5 1/2 cups flour (or more)
  • 2 eggs
  • margarine, brown sugar, cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins (optional)
Sauce:
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
Instructions
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add cake mix and eggs. Beat well. Add flour to make a soft dough. Knead for a couple of minutes. Let rise until doubled in size in a greased bowl (about 1 hour).
While the dough is rising make the sauce. Heat all ingredients in a saucepan until everything is mixed together. Divide evenly and spread in two 9x13 inch pans.The sauce should be cooled before you place the rolled dough into it.
Punch down the dough and divide in half. Roll each half into a rectangle. On each rectangle, spread thick layers of margarine, brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the raisins on if you're using them. Roll up like a jelly roll. Slice each into 12 buns and place into the pans. Put into the fridge overnight or for 8-12 hours. The buns won't rise much.. don't worry they rise when baking!
In the morning pull out the pans and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. (I find I usually end up baking a bit longer until they are browned on top)
